French papers react to Champs-Élysées attack
Date created : Latest update :
French daily Le Parisien reacts with "anger and disgust" to Thursday night's attack on the Champs-Élysées, in which a policeman was killed just days before France heads to the polls. Right-wing daily Le Figaro pays tribute to security forces who pay the "heavy price" of terror attacks. Left-wing papers criticise right-wing candidates for capitalising on the tragedy. Other papers look ahead to Sunday's exceptionally unpredictable vote and back at a campaign that has been "anything but smooth".
